HERE iOS SDK Developer's Guide

App Submission Requirements

This section contains important information on how to prepare your HERE iOS SDK-enabled app for App Store submission. Be sure to follow the advice here to avoid store rejections caused by the HERE SDK.

Declare Private Data Access

Starting with iOS 10, you must statically declare access to private user data, such as address book and device location, before submitting your app to the App Store. Each declaration requires adding a key and a purpose string in your app's Info.plist file.

The following shows the required HERE iOS SDK data access declarations. You can use the recommended <string> entries in your app's Info.plist, or you can choose strings that are appropriate to your app.

Note: All HERE iOS SDK apps must have these declaration entries for the App Store submission process. App users are only prompted for the appropriate data access if your app uses the relevant HERE SDK feature.
<string>This is needed to determine your current location</string>

You can find more information about these keys in the following article:
